CALL: NYU Production Lab and VICE Collaboration

The NYU Production Lab and VICE want to help you tell your story. We’re looking for Gen Z voices who want to master VICE’s distinctive storytelling style. Learn how to shape bold stories, build trust with your subjects, and craft a pitch that will sell from VICE producers.

Over the course of the spring semester, students will attend workshops, shoot footage, build pitch decks, and receive real time feedback on their work.

You do not need to have formal training, but you will be expected to get your hands dirty, work with new people, and contribute to the production of content. Current students from all schools and programs are encouraged to apply.

If you’re hungry to make short-form documentary content, meet new collaborators, and receive mentorship from industry pros, apply today!
